Subject: Bit confused - any advice appreciated.

Hi I have been on here before. I had bloods, xray and ultrasound done to see if I had PA. Had swollen finger and painful feet. Glad to say that they all came back negative. Been on a wheat and dairy diet for a couple of months and feel great. My feet and finger are much better but now have trigger finger in same finger. As I was leaving I double checked again that I did not have arthritis and he said well you must of had some to cause trigger finger!!!! Was a bit shocked and on my own so left without asking more questions. If I have no signs in blood etc could this have been a reactive arthritis? I had a very bad back for three months before this started. He did say I may have it so mildly that it does not show yet. Going back in two months and decided not to take drugs yet incase it really isn't arthritis. Confused??

Oh I did not realise. Hmm. Maybe he will do more bloods in two months time then. I was happy not to take any tablets cos feeling so much better since my diet. He did say that dairy could be what triggers it in me and that cutting it has helped. Still, I am getting little niggly twinges in my hips now. He said to call if I get any worse and they will see me earlier than the two months.
Thanks for your reply.

Hmm. Thinking that maybe PA will show in next bloods. Woken up today with trigger finger bad, toes itchy and feeling fat and feet very achy to walk on. Saying that I have had two meals with wheat in the past two days and had chronic indigestion. So could be my wheat intollerance. Think I am trying to fool myself into thinking it's not PA when it really could be. :@(
